Inspired by Homer’s Odyssey and the Aegean.
Listen next: A vinyl mix by ambient pioneer Gigi Masin
The album takes its name from the myth of the nymph Calypso, who imprisoned Odysseus on the island of Ogygia for seven years. Masin sought inspiration from its alleged counterpart, Gavdos, as well as James Joyce’s Ulysses and Byron’s Childe Harold.
“Calypso’s sound might simply be Aegean, as every track takes you directly and vividly there – to timeless Greek beauty, glistening seas, picturesque landscapes and the sun’s bright, balmy heat”, Masin explains.
